< < Release Reviews on Manchester Music For April, 2012

Bringing you all the Live Reviews that matter since 1998

COMMON PEOPLE
29 April 2012 / Common / Manchester
:: The Former Bullies :: Brown Brogues :: Sex Hands ::
Sunday afternoon and Common is rammed full, there's a washing line full of T-shirts, amps stuffed between randomly placed sofas... and what's that on the window?!

BRING THE NOISE
29 April 2012 / Ruby Lounge / Manchester
:: Russian Circles :: Deafheaven :: Our Man In The Bronze Age ::
Four drummers, three bands, one great night from Fat Out Til You Pass Out who appear to have hit a particularly rich seam of such this year.

THE STROKE OF MIDNIGHT
26 April 2012 / Gullivers / Manchester
:: Salford Media City :: The Yossarians :: ILL ::
Frenzied folk, fevered rantings about Prince Philip and a band dressed in bandages: welcome back Stroke Club and indeed Gullivers, we have missed you...

TIME OUT FROM THE BLACKOUT
19 April 2012 / Alter Ego / Manchester
:: Gavin Butler :: Neil Starr ::
They're better known as the frontmen of the decidedly un-acoustic The Blackout and Attack! Attack! but tonight sees Butler and Starr in stripped down mode.

AFTERNOON DELIGHTS
21 April 2012 / The Castle (Oldham St) / Manchester
:: Glass Ankle :: Vei :: Kiran Leonard :: Teletextile ::
In part two of his Record Store Day afternoon adventures, Ged goes to check out Carefully Planned at the Castle. We are actually not sure how he did this as we're pretty certain these gigs were on at the same time...

WELL FED
21 April 2012 / Soup Kitchen / Manchester
:: Young British Artists :: Die Hexen :: Shinies ::
Soup Kitchen celebrates Record Store Day by providing food upstairs and live music downstairs for those wearied from hours of queueing (and those who didn't bother).

KEVIN'S TECHNICOLOUR DREAMS
22 April 2012 / Sound Control / Manchester
:: Of Montreal :: Patterns :: Kishi Bashi ::
If there is an age beyond which no man should wear turquoise eyeshadow then nobody told Kevin Barnes. Of Montreal's show is as flamboyant as you'd expect, but there could be an even greater talent lurking in the ranks...

TRUE LIFE STORIES
20 April 2012 / The Art Of Tea, Didsbury / Manchester
:: Songs For Walter :: T G Elias :: Douga ::
A bunch of photographs show real life as it was depicted in a twentieth century that already seems like another world; this is their soundtrack.

INDUSTRIAL SURFGAZE
18 April 2012 / Kraak / Manchester
:: Odonis Odonis :: Kult Country ::
"Am I too loud, what's happening?" drawls the skinny one in the "HELL" t-shirt in the manner of a man who just woke up and realised he was halfway through a gig. Loud? Yep. Too loud? What do you think?

BEAUTIFUL NOISE
17 April 2012 / Islington Mill / Salford
:: Barn Owl :: A-Sun Amissa :: Tombed Visions ::
"The floor is vibrating. I'm pretty certain the floor is concrete in here so I'm not even sure how they're doing this..." For the second time in a week Salford plays host to some of the world's finest ambient and experimental music.

UNDERGROUND OVERGROUND SUN-SHINING FREE
14 April 2012 / Club Academy (Academy 4) / Manchester
:: The Sunshine Underground :: Troumaca ::
TSU specialise in crafting powerful waves of indie- rock thatís been unjustly overlooked over the past couple of years - here they return with a flag waving triumph...

NORTHERN LIGHTS
12 April 2012 / Sacred Trinity Church / Salford
:: The Rustle Of The Stars (Richard Knox and Frederic D Oberland) :: Jasper TX :: Matthew Collings ::
An imagined musical passage through the North Pole explorer diaries: it's good to know people are still finding new ways to combine music and imagination.

TIME WAITS FOR NO-ONE
12 April 2012 / Dulcimer (Chorlton) / Manchester
:: Vieka ::
This dark and brooding atmosphere is a tasteful play on their livelier sets

TOY COME OUT TO PLAY
10 April 2012 / Soup Kitchen / Manchester
:: TOY :: Golden Glow ::
Even if they are effectively off-the-peg shoegaze- gone-krautrock tunes, they're good ones.
